Better Than Expected
Posted Sep 18, 2016
Reviews are about 50/50 for all the hotels on the island. We had a last minute four day trip to Bermuda and my choices were this hotel, Elbow Beach and the Reefs. My husband wanted to stay at Grotto Bay (and we were glad it was booked once we visited) The Fairmont is beautiful! The staff was friendly and the walk to the beach (or you can shuttle) was minimal (a little exercise is good for you, even on vacation). We stayed on the concierge level with a sea view. No obstructions to the view as it is the highest level. The room was huge and the bathroom was great. The concierge level is the way to go if possible. It saved us a lot of money on eating out (dining is a bit disappointing as the cost to quality ratio is off) as they offer a nice breakfast and four other snacking opportunities. If we return to Bermuda, we will definitely stay here. We were also allowed a late check-out which was super. NOTE: stay away from the mopeds if you've never ridden one - I became inducted into the "road rash" club and would have rather not!

I appreciated reading your review. Thank you for sharing.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the resort. Indeed, the concierge level Fairmont Gold offers a great product. Not only we serve food at four different moments of the day but also differentiates itself with the extra pampered service that is provided.
Thank you again for the great review and I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back on the island.
